First they came for The Three Little Pigs...

Friend-of-the-blog Pam Meister will be writing columns about once a week for Pajamas Media, she blogs regularly at Blogmeister USA.

Pam confronts the latest politically-correct goofiness from Great Britain: An updated version of The Three Little Pigs has been denied an award because "the use of pigs raises cultural issues." They're afraid of offending Muslims.

Is it possible to kill this fable, one that has, by the way, a valuable lesson for children? The moral of the tale is that slipshod work and avoiding confronting problems, as the straw-pig and the sticks-pig did, leads to unpleasant consequences.

Wait, that's what the PC Brits are doing!

Meanwhile, the Dr. Rowan Williamson, Archbishop of Canterbury, is calling for new laws "that would punish 'thoughtless and cruel' styles of speaking."
